|Online Goth Related Cartoons
new section I plan to gather most of the production from the dark
site of the Internet toons. Most of the below listed work are not
specifically online-cartoons - as Lenore or OMG but, anyway, are
very cult and present in the web.
I start with the most know works from names like Tim Burton, Roman
Dirge and Voltaire, but the idea is to gather as many as possible
anonymous an pseudo artists like me...
| a new Tim Burton work
||Stainboy is an unusual
animated series from a filmmaker with a unique and hauing artistic
vision. Bringing that vision to the web required that Tim Burton's
callaborators, Santa Monica-based flinch Studios, break new ground
in both creative and technical terms - how characters should move,
squash, stretch effects, and other traditional techniques had to be
reworked to achieve the effects Burton wanted in Stainboy.
Burton came to flinch with a series of watercolor sketches he'd created
of Stainboy and other characters - some drawn from this book The
Melancholy Death of Dysterboy, others entirely new...
typed from the 'production notes' text found inside Stainboy's
| the cute little dead
could not find any official bio about Lenore, beside her short description
above. Luck me that she doesn't need much introduction.
Lenore was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's homonymous poem. She is the
well-known cute character from Roman Dirge's spooky comics
- besides Lenore, he run some more titles like 'The Taxidermy',
'Something at the Window is Scratching' and 'The Monsters
in my Tummy'
All of his works follow the Burton's like cute/creep esthetic... predictable
is the fact that a future TVShow starring Lenore will count with a
crew which scripting credits include "A Nightmare Before Christmas",
"Edward Scissorhands'' and "Beetlejuice."

JTHM is comic book
series about a guy that's just had enough with society and is slowly
being taken over by some kind of force that drives him to kill ...
all those hipocritical people who care more about their coolness
than anything else.
It's drawn and written by Jhonen Vasquez. He manages to draw
an amazing atmosphere with extreme comedy while putting a good point
accross. Since this comic is published by a small company, Jhonen
has complete creative control, which alows the violence in this
comic to go totally beyond anything I've ever seen, while maintaining
an integrity that keeps it unreal and even ... acceptable?

Chian | but you must say
In this cyber Cinderella
story for the year 3000, a young, innocent girl battles mammoth
worm trains, giant insects, a samurai robot and her own twisted
family to save a dark, future New York from its imminent destruction.
New York, New Jersey war of the 31st century, the island of Manhattan,
a battered hull of its former glory, is sold to a Japanese company
to be used as a testing ground for organic technology. It isn't
long before things go terribly wrong...

My Goth | first Voltaire
South Park and
The Munsters meets SNL's "Goth Talk" in this hilarious send up of
gothic silliness as pompous extraterrestrial, Heironymous Posch
alludes skeletal aliens and the dark armies of Lord Beelzebub in
the New York Goth scene. You'll choke on your fake fangs and make
a pee pee in your vinyl pants when you read Voltaire's hysterical,
satirical parody of teenage Goths!
adventures are a hysterical romp through American pop culture as
they appear on The Sally Jesse Raphael Show, get repeatedly beat
up at shopping malls by the dreaded and have satirical encounters
with pop icons Marilyn Manson and Bela Lugosi....

boy | online comic featuring
an angst boy. deja vu?
By turns mixing
slapstick, irony, and poignancy, "Angst Boy Comics" is
the tale of Angst, a slave to his own crushing melancholia who wanders
the purgatory of the goth scene, dive bars, and the comic book shop
like Diogenes with a bad hair cut. Angst takes his turn searching
for truth, looking for love, exploring relationships, and blurring
the line between all three with alcohol, sarcasm, and Bauhaus.
To pester our brooding hero are the angry Surly Girl and the deliriously
silly Perki Girl. A comic that's probably better than a quick, sharp
poke to the eye and less life-threatening. The only real hazard
is the realization of how pitiful and depressing life really is
but you knew that already, didn't you?

R Us | Fun Stuff for

is the best black-metal humor site you can find!
Created by talented artist Pedro Daniel, that is a link repository
for Joe Cartoon-like flash animations, and illustrated guides on how
to become Evil or about the Evil diversity fauna....

animation featured on shockwave.com
but cool, says the creator, Joe Sparks.
Well, I think it's more to cool than silly. Most people may think
so, as you can see for the great feedback they have - there's pictures
of many radiskull tattos, fan art and even real devil doll DOLLS...
Great animation, and fantastic soundtrack - Sparks is also a talented
musician. You can even download mp3 files from the animation soundtracks,
and trust me, you'll really want to get them.

Up Goth | weird little
cartoon by Laura Laser
||See, it all started
out as a joke, but then it got to be pretty cool, and because staying
at home making cartoons is cheaper than going out every night and
smoking crack, I'm just going to keep on doing this. In the meantime,
I work at a super-secret day job to pay for my pens and my Taco Bell
Obviously, I've never taken an art class in my life so if you're one
of those people who want to criticize my choices of colors or the
fact that someone's head is a little too flat in one frame, you really
should consider visiting a foreign country that smells bad and has
awful cheeseburgers. You'll appreciate everything a little more when
you get back.

and Shine | comics for
the uber in you!
||Cynical comics about
a gothic/industrial DJ in New Orleans. Coffee, cloves, scene politics,
bitchy ex-girlfriends, bad song requests, stupid tourists and mule
dookie. It hits home no matter where you live.
Writhe is the cute new guy with glowing orbs for eyes. He's got everything
going for him. He's an artist and DJ's at The Bastille, the best club
New Orleans has ever seen.
Shine is the bald cranky fixture at the club who is bitter about everything.
He's very cynical and clever. Favorite drink: Guniess or coffee.

Park | french goth bastards
is no much information on their site. But what can we say?
Hilarious, very well adapted from South Park, even on minimal details!
Funny animation and plots, featuring great characters probably inspired
by real people - weird and bidimensional as most flesh and blood
Souk Park is
one of the best goth parodies out there! Don't mess it
| stress the first syllable,
and it sounds like Alice
||How do you pronounce
Alas? As Gopher says, "It depends on how depressed you are
at the time." Stress the first syllable, and it sounds like "Alice."
Stress the second syllable, and it sounds like the first part of "alas,
alack." The ambiguity is intended.
Why are some of the strips in that really weird vertical format?
When I first started drawing Alas, I used a vertical 1x4 format similar
to that used by Japanese comic strips; partly because they inspired
me, and partly because I had little idea what I was doing. I eventually
switched to the 2x2 format you see now because it fits neatly on most

County | It's all Grace's
||She and I were chatting,
and she said something about Opus and the gang in Bloom County.
She chose that moment to have a glorious and inspired typo, however,
and it lodged in my head for a while. It got me to thinking...
What if the residents of Berke Breathed's Bloom County had been goths,
punks, rivetheads, and the like?
...and so, Gloom County was born.
So step inside, put on some Bauhaus, make a cup of hot cocoa, and
open a bag of fresh dandelions...and enjoy your stay in Gloom County!

X | It's times like these
that I thank God I'm sealed in a jar
||We live in strange
Times when suburbanites stroke their egos by buying off-road vehicles
that only go off-road when the tires shred. Times when you need a
Supreme Court ruling to even have a hope in Hell of defeating a conservative
Presidential candidate. Times when "alternative" music has
been replaced by bubble-gum boy bands and white-boy rape rock. Strange
times call for strange measures. And strange comics. Eric Millikin
and Casey Sorrow's Fetus-X is that comic...

Goth Girl | at The Other
Side : Twisted Animations by Mata
Little Goth Girl was going to ba a one off animation finishing with her being eaten by a demon she summons by accident, but I just
didn't have the heart to kill her off, so she sat there on my desktop, blinking
at me for several months until it creeped me out enough to do something
with her. These days she's got herself an ongoing series with new episodes
added usually at least once, if not twice, a month. I had to give
her that or she would just have kept on staring at me.
